A PIECE OF MY HEART...sand dunes

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A SAND DUNE?

Throughout the world, there are places where the wind will pile sand into strange and wonderful hills and ridges and this is called dunes. Each sand dune is different in its own way.

Each shape is determined according to how much sand there is and what kind of sand is available to be blown into dunes. The direction of the wind is also essential in forming sand dunes.

Alot of the sand you observe today was once part of a rock. Rocks may seem indestructible, but they are not. You can crush a rock down into fine sand particles. Nature has several ways of changing rock into sand.

The formation of sand dunes reminds me of how God can form each of his children into something different but yet wonderful. Much like the rock that can be grinded down and made into something new....so does the power of the blood of Jesus that can work on us and make us a new creation.

2 CORINTHIANS 5:17"Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come."


Is God shaping you?
What formation is God working on in you?
If you need some fine tuning in your spirit...go to the ROCK!


and that's a piece of my heart today;
